5:32 am
the kids get used to drinking it there, and will choose water instead of sugary or high-calorie drinks, away from school. and it's slightly more effective for *boys, than *girls. the overall impact is admittedly small... lowering the risk of being overweight less than one percent... but anything that combats childhood obesity is applauded, and encouraged. 3 (walter still trying to quit smoking? maybe *this will inspire you. a new study by the personal finance website, "wallet hub," shows just how much money smokers spend on their habit over a lifetime. and the numbers are staggering... here in florida, the average smoker will spend nearly one-and-a-half *million dollars on smoking. that puts us 31st on the list. new york is the *most expensive. 3 3 (walter) munchies on the midway... it's almost time for the fair, and lots of deep fried fun.
